Everyone yearns for that magical feeling of being in love. But falling for someone is just the start: what we need most is an emotionally nourishing, caring relationship. As children, we bond passionately with our parents or caregivers; as adults, that need matures and transforms. We become filled with the desire for romantic love. Love may not always be easy to find, but it is literally the most natural thing in the world to want. Psychology of Attraction takes you through the process of finding a relationship, meeting new people, and also the most often overlooked: your relationship with yourself.
